Vorsprung durch Technik. Rarely has a tagline become so iconic, or felt so apt. Audi’s famous slogan translates as ‘Advancement through Technology’, a neat summation of this German automaker’s reputation for sharp, innovative design that exudes quality and understated style.
Audi’s long-standing association with the core characteristics of German motor engineering owes much to its unwavering commitment to elegant design and exacting build quality. Audis invariably present a convincing marriage of sporty glamour and robust dependability.
The Audi range runs from compact hatchbacks to butch SUVs and racy roadsters, covering plenty of ground but always retaining the brand’s assured stylistic signifiers.
Why do I need Audi GAP insurance?
If you treasure your Audi, it stands to reason that you want to protect it, which is where GAP insurance comes in. We purchase insurance to protect ourselves against all manner of motoring misfortunes – from mechanical failure to theft. But why do you really need GAP insurance?
Almost half a million cars are written off in the UK every year, but many motorists aren’t insured to cover the costs of a like-for-like replacement in such circumstances - the problem? Depreciation.
A car typically loses about 60% of its value over the three years after its original purchase. So, if your insurance policy only pays out the current value of your car, as most do, you’ll be some way short of the figure needed to replace your car with the same model.
Let’s imagine the car in question is an Audi A5 that cost you £40,000. In the event that your Audi is written off or stolen three years later, you might be looking at a payout of just £14,000, assuming the value of the car has depreciated 60% in three years. Sadly, the prospect of simply buying a new replacement with your insurance payout is a non-starter.
What do I get with MotorEasy?
MotorEasy GAP Insurance offers an ingenious way to cover the disparity between your payout and the cost of a new like-for-like replacement car, allowing you to claim back the original cost of your vehicle rather than its heavily depreciated market value.
When you consider that a new Audi’s value typically begins to drop the moment you drive it off the dealership forecourt, it’s easy to see why MotorEasy GAP Insurance makes sense to so many motorists – it offers the complete peace of mind you simply don’t get from a standard motor insurance policy.
Sometimes, it pays to consider the worst-case scenario, even if you probably don’t want to. Almost half a million cars are written off in the UK every year, so it makes sense to take extra measures to limit your risk.
The case for GAP cover is even more compelling if you’re paying for your car with a leasing arrangement or PCP financing, which could leave you exposed to considerable debt in the event of a write-off.
Available for all cars up to 8 years old (or with up to 80,000 miles on the clock), MotorEasy GAP Insurance represents a smart, easy and affordable way to remove these risks and enjoy your Audi to the full.
No one wants to contemplate the threat of a write-off, but statistics suggest that it’s more common than you might imagine - more than half a million cars are written off in the UK each year! This is why we believe that GAP insurance makes sense as an extra level of protection.
MotorEasy GAP Insurance offers cover against more than just accidental damage. We also include cover against car theft, which accounts for a large number of write-offs every year. In fact, statistics show that the threat of car theft is on the rise. 112,174 motor vehicles were stolen in the UK in 2017/18, the equivalent of 307 every day! Sadly, that figure also represents a significant increase on previous years and the continuation of a 50% rise in car theft since 2014.
